For a liquid and solid property, both specific volume and internal energy are more dependent on
Temperature then Pressure, so the more important property to know is temperature.
For Idea gas, specific volume is m
When one skates on ice, a thin film of water forms underneath the skate because
there is friction between the blade of the skate and the ice. This friction causes a minimal
raise in heat of the ice in contact with the blade. This local increase in heat
1. To determine the specific volume (v) and specific internal energy (u) for some solids and liquids, is it
more important that we know pressure (p) or temperature (T)? If for ideal gas, is it more important to
know p or T?
It is more important to know te
